5 Best Okonomiyaki in Osaka 2023

In Osaka, the dish okonomiyaki hits different. That’s because okonomiyaki is Osaka’s signature dish. To give you an idea of where to find this, we listed the 5 Best Okonomiyaki in Osaka.


Osaka is known for its “konamono” or flour-based dishes. Besides okonomiyaki, some of the most popular flour-based Japanese dishes that you may have already come across are takoyaki, kushikatsu, and even breads and udon noodles.


Translated to “Japanese pizza” in English, okonomiyaki is actually very different from Italian-origin wheat-based food. Although okonomiyaki is made from thick wheat flour batter, it is held together by nagaimo or mountain yam and topped with various ingredients such as pork, shrimp, squid, cheese, vegetables, and whatnot.
